County town hall meeting set Tuesday


A Town Hall meeting to discuss the state of Wood County with elected officials will be held in the third floor District Court Room, Tuesday, beginning promptly at 6 p.m.

State Senator Bryan Hughes, State Representative Cole Hefner, District Judge Jeff Fletcher and Wood County Sheriff Tom Castloo are hosting the event and each one will be on hand to speak and answer questions from the public.

Each official will outline the progress made this year concerning Wood County and will present future goals and their vision for the county and state.

Fletcher feels it is important for the citizens of Wood County to voice their concerns to the elected officials.

“It will be a type of state of the state and state of the county. We will be talking about where we were when we took office and progress made so far,” Fletcher noted. “I will discuss where we are judicially as far as cases which have been resolved and what is pending. Sheriff Castloo will talk about crime rates and things like that I am assuming. Cole (Hefner) and Bryan (Hughes) will be discussing things at the state level which affect Wood County.”

“I think it is a good idea for the Town Hall meeting. People have elected each one of us to do a job and I believe they have a right to find out what is going on right now and what plans for the future look like. I think it is a good idea for people to stay informed. We are all in this together and we need to be informed about what is going on at the county and state level,” Fletcher concluded.

Only the lower west entrance will be open to enter the courthouse. Coordinators say this is a non-partisan event.
